Great location and lovely place to sit and have a drink looking at the ocean. We went midweek but it was still quiet compared to the other places we went that day. The service was very ordinary, no smile or cheery welcome. The restaurant next door looked like a good place with some great specials

Lucky(and grateful) to get a table as agreed to meet friends from Sydney for Sunday lunch not realising it was Mother's Day ( ours is in a March in the UK!) obviously very busy. Very good food but one of the party asked for gluten free chips, when they arrived she asked to make sure they were gluten free and... More

A lot can be learnt by visiting. It wasn't a good start. The repeated cleaning delays to the spa suite (the first time my host and I went back to the hotel saloon bar for an hour, the second time we took a seat in the reception area and waited and waited…) were relayed in a slightly terse manner by...

just across the street from Perth's best beach, this is a great hotel in its category. The rooms are spacious and some have great views. There is a pub right next door which can get noisy on weekends but we don't mind it. Lots of restaurants and another pub in walking distance. Although not 5-star, I rate it high because... More

The Ocean Beach Hotel, or 'OBH' as it has been known to generations of WA young people, is a jewel in the crown of Perth's beachfront. Variously known as 'Cott' and 'North Cott" the two adjoining beaches at Cottesloe, are surf beaches. They provide good body surfing waves up until mid afternoon, when the sea breeze comes in and makes... More

I've been staying at OBH regularly for the last five years or so - and have to admit that some of the unflattering comments provided by other travellers are fair enough. Yes - rooms are dated, can be noisy and I've never had any luck with the paid wifi connection. However, the rooms that overlook the beach are spacious, the... More

We arrived late in Perth and were only staying for one night before heading to Margaret River. The rooms are dated and depressing and there is a lot of noise from other rooms and the hotel bar next door. Cottesloe is such a beautiful area and the location of the hotel is fantastic. Honestly the best part was waking in... More

Travelled to WA for work and stayed in Cottesloe. Made a hectic trip much better, finishing the day with the spectacular sunsets and ocean views was great. Convenient location with loads of food options. Hotel is older but that's half the charm.
